Like the unending grace of a flowing river, your little precious gem is sure to be a great beauty—both inside and out. Give baby a name that encompasses all that, and choose Rumi. This short but sweet feminine name has a few meanings: “beauty,” “current or flow,” and “lapis lazuli.” All of these different meanings are possible because of the different kanji letters used to spell the name in Japanese.
